World-renowned scientist Ray Kurzweil believes that it won't be long before we can reverse aging.
Kurzweil has also predicted that we will soon be able to replace any failing organ in the body with an artificial equivalent, that we will be able to scuba dive underwater for hours at a time and that it will be possible to write entire books within minutes. The basis for these predictions, in addition to his own experiences, is the exponential rate at which technology is currently advancing.
"I and many other scientists now believe that in around 20 years we will have the means to reprogramme our bodies' stone-age software so we can halt, then reverse, aging," he said. "Then nanotechnology will let us live for ever. Ultimately, nanobots will replace blood cells and do their work thousands of times more effectively."
"Ray Kurzweil, a world-renowned scientist and author of The Singularity is Near, thinks the world as we know it will be unrecognizable in 20 years."
